Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil. The anomaly was white/silver relative to its background which 
is consistent with oil in sunglint. Additionally, the anomaly appeared 
to originate from an oil facility or a sunken barge in the immediate vicinity.
 The anomaly extended about .75 NM long by 0.05 NM wide at its widest.
 Winds were at 5 KT out of the SW at the time of the image. Given the 
above factors we have HIGH confidence in our assessment.

This anomaly could be emanating from any of three possible sources in the 
immediate area, including a known repeat leak source associated with the 
recovery of a sunken barge previously noted in NRC#1212987.
